Clear a choice for me :)

Hi. I've been looking at SLR's for a pretty good while now and I forgot to research Pentax.

I was then on a choice in either Canon's 20,30 or 40D 20 for the price, 40 for the performance, 30 for the... better of both worlds.

And since i intend to take good sports photography
a 70-200mm f2.8 lens which is know to be the best for under 1500$ on canon's side, under1000 for the sigma version

I'd like to know how Pentax does in fast paced photography, sports etc, and which is the BEST lens for a pretty long focus length.

some points to clear out
focus speeds
sharpness for this kind of photography
availability of lenses.. canon's can be found everywhere and a lot used for much cheaper.


ps. Yeah i really like the k10d.. the look and feel..

If it was for portraits and such, I LOVE THE PENTAX'S FEEL!
